In order to determine the importance of lens actin filament configuration to lens accommodation, the pattern of actin filaments in the epithelium was studied in human lenses from different decades of life spanning the accommodative and non-accommodative years. Polygonal arrays of microfilaments were demonstrated in whole mounts of epithelium from normal and(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the possible role of caspase-3 in retinal photic injury, and to investigate whether minocycline can ameliorate light-induced photoreceptor degeneration. METHODS Retinal photic injury was induced in rats by exposure to intense light. Expression of caspase-3 was studied using Western blot analysis, immunohistochemical staining and enzyme(More)
PURPOSE Hemophilia A and B (HA, HB) are the most common X-linked inherited bleeding disorders. The introduction of factor concentrates has allowed for control of the lifelong chronic disease. However, no studies have been published regarding the epidemiology of hemophilia in Taiwan. Our aim was to determine the prevalence, incidence, and mortality rate, as(More)
Five guinea pig fetuses at 8 weeks' gestation (term is 9 weeks) were tested for auditory brain stem response (ABR) generated by earphones placed outside the maternal abdomen. The results obtained from these fetuses were compared with the ABRs in 10 term newborn guinea pigs on the 1st and 20th day after delivery. The ABRs indicated a decreasing peak latency(More)
A proposed new electrode for measurement of foetal auditory brain stem response (ABR) is presented, the structure of which resembles a syringe needle. It can be placed subdermally in the head of the guinea pig foetus through the wall of the maternal abdomen. In the anterior end of the electrode a special device similar to a hook is situated. The device may(More)
